Introduction


A big thank you to Steiger Dynamics for providing the ERA HTPC system for review.

Steiger Dynamics, located in Redwood City, California, is well known for its high-end HTPCs. With an exceptional attention to detail, their systems are built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, and it shows. Built in custom cases paired with high-quality components, it is no wonder they have numerous awards under their belt already.


In today's review, I take a look at the Steiger Dynamics ERA HTPC, which is the first system I have looked at from them. It is equipped with an i7-9700K, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 16 GB of DDR4 3000 MHz memory, and a pair of SSDs for storage, all of which and more is crammed into a low-profile ERA II aluminium chassis that offers a sleek, professional appearance for quite a nice-looking system. But, as always, performance is what matters, so let's take a closer look at what's inside!
